We were only here for one day and night, before the start of a Baltic cruise. We had never been to Copenhagen, and liked this hotel and loved the city!
The hotel is conveniently located, near the Kastellet (fort and park), and a short walk from the Little Mermaid statue.
We ended up eating mostly at the hotel, since we really enjoyed the food, and also loved the ambience of the restaurant and the décor, as well as the service.
We were in a "mini suite" room and found it to be a little small...mostly due to the strange layout, with a big entrance way and closet area (which was actually quite useful since it enabled us to store our luggage out of the way), and a half wall separating the bed from the sitting area, which chopped up the room too much and made it feel crowded.
However, we had a balcony, and a nice view over the roof tops and to the dome of the church, so that was great.
I was worried about the fact that the hotel had no air conditioning...it was quite warm and sunny when we were there, however, leaving the windows open over night to let in the cool air and closing over the curtains during the day with the fan on kept the room comfortable.
I would still love to know how to turn off the heated floor tiles in the bathroom though! The answer I got when I asked was "good question!" :)
I also loved the linens and towels, and especially the bath products....I ended up buying a couple of the dragon fly face cloths and the shower gel body wash to bring home because it smelled so good!
One minor negative was that the hotel exterior was being painted, so that was a little inconvenient sometimes trying to go in and out of the hotel with all the scaffolding etc, and it also meant that the hotel smelled of paint. But that should be done soon, and it will improve the hotel look. Also, I'm not sure if it was the "recycled" aspect of some of the components, but I found that the room didn't seem to be quite as clean as I would have hoped....the stone tub and sink seemed stained, as did the pipes/taps, but maybe that is because they were old and recycled? The shower head also didn't work too well.....light water pressure and sprays in all directions!
Overall, we really enjoyed our time here, though, and would likely stay here again on our next trip.
